Aromas opened with a strong scent of dry new oak like shavings on a carpenter's workbench. Powerful puffs of fine ladies perfume wafted across the table and from there the nose grew and grew, expanding into lavender, violets and the soft fruits of lychee and apricots. Water enticed a layer of rose from the glass but undeniably it presented fruitier incarnations. Hedgerow berries and raspberry jam brought a sticky sweetness whilst plums turned our path towards sloe gin and then creamy vanilla. The palate warmed the tongue with fresh ginger but quickly became sweet as butterscotch, toffee and fudge created buttery textures. A lovely dimension of pineapple chunks and wild strawberries followed, all wrapped in a hessian sack on the finish.
